The group of patients defined as “problematic patient” in aesthetic plastic surgical practice has distinctive features. The “problematic patient” is the patient who blocks the establishment of a therapeutic relationship with him/her. In other words, the patient who does not adapt to the patient role that the health-care professional expects, has different values, beliefs, or personal characteristics than he/she expects to see, and sometimes causes the professional to even suspect himself/herself. They are not good candidates for esthetic surgery, and they should definitely not be operated, so to speak, these patients should be removed from the game by removing a red card, and somehow be disqualified from the process.
